Hi Badru,

Kindly explain or clarify the gap you have observed, so we can correct this.

I believe to the best of my ability that as chair and on behalf of the
Board, I have engaged on matters directed at us, even when they clearly
border on operational issues.

It would also be helpful if you further confirm one or more of these to
help me see how to lead the board to intervene so as to improve things:

1. Should Board and staff respond to all issues, and are they obliged to do

2. Should Chair or CEO acknowledge all questions and routes to an
appropriate person?

3. Chair or CEO acknowledges all posts and provides an estimated response

4. Should members explicitly address chair or CEO in discussions instead of
"can someone respond?"

5. Should members directly write Afrinic instead of posting urgent
questions on the mailing lists?

6. Should Afrinic policy liaison monitors the lists and brings noteworthy
or urgent issues to the attention of the CEO as the case may be?

7. Should the chair always respond to all operational issues or extract
answers from the CEO and relay?

8. Are you addressing Chair, Board, Staff or all?

It is important that I get you right. What do you suggest?

A response from any of the responsible persons might be of value.

I’m concerned that responses coming back to issues raised by community are
not being given the due attention, with some glaring omissions which makes
the members worry if we have all hands on deck.

Would it be advisable to have some kind of SLA in how long it takes to
respond to community and Member queries??

I have noticed it takes quite some time for members to get an
acknowledgement on issues raised.

Although I was not asked this question, I perceive that some people may
expect me to answer it.

Hi Alan,

Yes certainly....

Yes, resources from members who go out of business are recovered.  The
recovered resources are quarantined for two years, during which time they
are marked as RESERVED in the WHOIS database.  After the ene of he
quarantine period, the recovered resources are released to the pool for
possible re-use.

We do not publicise the names of the members concerned.  The reserved space
may be found in raw data published at <ftp://ftp.afrinic.net/pub/sta

As far as I am concerned the list of members who defaulted and/or under
closure used to be published for example the below AFRINIC link.


Why are we being less transparent about this now? In fact since 2014, how
many members were closed up until 2017 as that record doesnt exist today?

I also checked the ftp://ftp.afrinic.net/stats/af
rinic/delegated-afrinic-extended-latest as you recommended.

Are all those 2411 INR marked as “reserved”, resources from recovery?

If not how can one tell the difference between which are the recovered
space and everything else?
